I have been recomended not to have the scsi built on to the MB as most use the 32 bit and not the 64 bit data path and can cause problems. Does anyone know different ? Choosing a MB is hard engough and most seem to go Supermicro but would a seperate scsi card be the way.

Thanks

Simon

Simon,
While a 64-bit data path will give you a dramatic improvement in performance, integrated 32-bit SCSI controllers will not "cause problems".

The AIC-7902 on the SuperMicro 7505 boards IS a dual channel 64bit U320 controller.
